Is It Time to Release the Whale Sharks?
Is It Time To Release The Whale Sharks?...
from the Georgia Aquarium? We have just read the report of the death of a second whale shark (Rhincodon typus) - Norton - at the acclaimed aquarium. To preserve this gentle giant, should they not begin a cloning procedure(s) and/or release these creatures back to the wild where they belong before they accidentally kill more of them?
